Having done a similar free tour in Bucharest, we decided to do the same here in Brasov to learn something about the history and buildings. Simona had a good knowledge of the city, country and region and kept things both interesting and fun.

Walkabout tours are informative, fun, interesting and a great way to get to know a new city - in Brasov we had maranda who was cracking jokes, giving us tons of information, and answering our questions. Definitely recommend this company wherever you might be going.
